Entrenched health inequalities have come to the fore over the past couple of years and we have seen some of the sharpest declines in health and wellbeing for our children, young people and their families. Never has there been a more urgent need to address the link between wider social, economic and environmental causes to the increased risk of poor public health and mental health. These are best understood and addressed at a local level by people and organisations that have relationships and knowledge of the nuances and cultures of individuals and communities.
The formation of Integrated Care Systems (ICSs) represents a significant opportunity for Boards to engage the voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector in order to enable a truly integrated Health and Social Care System to be delivered. These new arrangements which will bring together local system partners should serve to strengthen relationships between the NHS and VCSE sector and promote greater equity.
This free webinar, co-produced and sponsored by Barnardo’s, brings together an esteemed panel of experts to discuss how we make the most of these opportunities at this critical time, as well as showcasing innovative VCSE projects that are delivering improved outcomes for children, young people and their families.
